Houston - US Claycourts Championships
« on: April 08, 2014, 02:40:16 PM »
Why? lol Because I thought this was worth posting  :)~

Donald Young def. Harrison 6-0, 6-1 in just 41 mins. Assume something was physically amiss with Ryan, who played 3 tough qualifying matches.

There have been some really quick matches this year. I think this is the third quickest this year, with the all-time record being set at 28 minutes a few weeks ago in Miami Neiminen def. Tomic.

Harrison had a bit of a back injury after a tough match to qualify yesterday. He had to pull out of the doubles later.

A win and a rup for 2014 would do wonders for his confidence after 2013's debacle. But I'm still selling, because I think he's mentally scared from all the late, big match collapses since Madrid 2012. Interested to see how he responds before I buy more stock.

Oh yeah, and Nico's record to Spaniards is abysmal with 3-6 vs Verdasco being his best! lol

EFF!

I'm gonna say Almagro choked that TB. Hits a 138mph serve into the wind and blasts an sitter into the net late in the TB. Wasn't just that 1 point. Had 5 set points at 4-5 but didn't convert and lost 3 points in the TB against his serve.

Almagro blowing 5 set points?  Who woulda thunk?   :whistle:
